Ben Bare: Owner


Before opening Window Genie of Redmond in 2015, Ben spent 8 years as an Army Ranger, earning the rank of Staff Sergeant during his service that included 9 combat tours to both Iraq and Afghanistan. During his transition out of the Army, he pursued business ownership so could be his own boss and create his own path to success. He said, “My wife and I fell in love with the Pacific Northwest while I was stationed here, so we knew Greater Seattle was the community we’d want to settle in to build the business and our future.” Ben said what excites him most about owning a local business is the opportunity to provide jobs and create a team. He said, “As Staff Sergeant I had 10 people working under me and it became a family. That’s the kind of environment I’d like to build again, a team my community can depend on. Our business will grow and thrive through the relationships we build with the customer base.”
